What’s Up 2020: Week 7

Welcome to another week. We’re halfway through February 2020 now. This week ends over Valentine’s Day weekend and yet things are surprisingly not very romantic this year. So much that the whole Valentine’s marathon fell somewhat in the background. Its not too bad since I do watch a lot of romantic TV series already so I’m a little more picky. Regardless, this week is moving forward rather okay. Gaming is falling a little behind as I’ve been preparing for the blogathon which is going on this current week.

READING

when stars are bright

  • When Stars Are Bright by Amber R. Duell (Review)

Currently reading: To Dream is To Die (Book #1)

Another book is tucked away as I wrapped up When Stars Are Bright for 2020. Reading has definitely been on track this year. Its not too weird since the first half of the year usually is good until the film festivals start and then things start falling apart. I’m trying to do a lot more reading now. I think I have some pretty interesting books lined up so a lot to look forward to before I even start digging into my TBR pile sitting on my bookshelf.

PLAYING

brothers

Currently playing: Overcooked 2, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons

I’m going to confess that while there are currently playing games, I’ve been busy with other things like catching up with movies and such that I haven’t really had time to play any games. Even mobile games haven’t really been in the picture so this week is a little hard to say what stood out. I do have to start playing exploring the games on the Xbox Game Pass for PC before it expires so expect better things happening soon. Currently, I’ve downloaded a few of them so will be talking about it soon.

WATCHING

The Wandering Earth

  • Lust, Caution (2007)
  • Catcalls (short 2017)
  • Come and Find Me (2016)
  • The Wandering Earth (2019, Review)
  • The Night Comes For Us (2018)

This week is a tough call on what to pick for my fave. Everything really delivered overall. The lesser movie might be Come and Find Me. Between Movies and Tea Podcast recording and getting ready for Ultimate 2010s Blogathon and making a final decision on what to pick, its been a lot of movie watching. The Night Comes For Us is a solid Netflix Original film which deserves so much attention. I did have to choose The Wandering Earth because that ended be my choice for Ultimate 2010s Blogathon as my kick-off review, which I have since had an opposing opinion, which is still pretty neat to read about because I thought it was a solid movie.

BINGING

  • Who’s The Murderer 5 (2019)

Currently binging: Find Yourself, The Singer 2020, Where Are We Going Dad 5, The Little One 2, Eternal Love of Dream

A lot of TV series ongoing right now that I am becoming very determined to work on finishing the few that I can. Luckily, a few of these are wrapping up. Who’s The Murderer 5 wrapped up its finale which is always sad because this variety is amazingly fun and this season really stepped up its game to have these cases that were well-thought and always had a good message to share. At the same time, they used a lot of the resources to their maximum and the group all had so much improvements in how to focus on the search. Anyways, I reviewed Season 4 so I’ll probably do a quick TV binge on Season 5 to talk about whats improved and such.

As for things wrapping up, I’m working hard on finishing Where Are We Going Dad 5 since that’s a season from 2017 so its already done. I’m only a few episodes from the ending and I think it’ll be sad to see that finish since watching father and kids interact together is so cute and funny. Its a happy show. At the same time, Find Yourself wrapped up as this post goes up and I had purposely decided to not watch it daily to group up more episodes to binge and just wrap it up. These shows have more impact like that especially in its ending episodes. When that is done, I will only have TV shows that are going on currently so only updated one to a few episodes a week and I’ll think of what to watch next. I haven’t quite decided yet.

That’s it for Week 7 of What’s Up 2020!
Probably the first wrap-up focused week to do some housekeeping and catch-up!
